Anxiety relief for creatives. Do you want to live a more creative life? Are you tired of the voice inside your head saying, “you’re not good enough,” “you’re not creative enough,” blah blah blah?

Unlike other guided journals, Overcoming Creative Anxiety shares unique journal prompts and practices to help you get to know both your inner critic and your inner creator.

Whether journaling for self-care or in search of stress relief, this book helps you:
